478. Jesus Loves Me, This I Know

1 Jesus loves me, this I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Refrain:
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

2 Jesus loves me, this I know,
he loved children long ago.
In his arms for all to see,
saying, "Let them come to me." [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves me, he will stay
close beside me all the way;
he's prepared a home for me,
and someday his face I'll see. [Refrain]

4 Jesus loves me, loves me still,
though I'm very weak and ill;
from his shining throne on high
comes to watch me where I lie. [Refrain]

5 Jesus loves me, he who died,
heaven's gates to open wide;
he will wash away my sin,
let his little child come in. [Refrain]
